Exclusive first look: Green Day Funko POP!s are finally here and they absolutely rule
From Fall Out Boy to Slipknot, many brilliant bands have been given the POP! vinyl treatment by Funko in recent years thanks to the POP! Rocks line… and now, finally, it’s the turn of Oakland punk rock legends Green Day.
All three members of the band – vocalist/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tré Cool – are set to get their own figures this summer, with Funko launching the release during their two-day virtual POPapalooza (nice!) event.

The Green Day POP!s focus on the band’s iconic American Idiot era, with Billie Joe wearing his signature black shirt and red tie, with a nice thick layer of eyeliner on as he strums his guitar. Mike’s got on a vest and is clearly taking his bass duties very seriously, while the swish Tré is holding his drum sticks up in the air. Each box that the figures come in has the band’s Dookie era logo on, so it’s an awesome coming together of different chapters for all Green Day fans to enjoy.
Check out an exclusive first look at all three figures below – and pre-order yours here from 9pm BST!
Here’s Billie Joe both in and out of his box:
